Time Out says

Engaging documentary about an eccentric family (old man, two sons, two daughters) living wild in a tumbledown house in the Sussex woods and doing their own thing (mainly music and tinkering with steam engines and other ancient machinery). Their lifestyle, expounded in fascinatingly wayward conversation which is allowed to make its own pace, embodies a weird cautionary logic about the miracles of modern technocracy.

mrs Shirlie Cowler nee Pa

I have a vhs copy of my Uncle Roland and his family. Watched it many times over the years. We use to visit the family now and again. My brother and I thought it was great as there was always something to do. Last time I saw Peter was at Tinkers Park Steam rally. A few later we met Jim at the same venue who told us Jim had passed away. Please contact me if you want more information on the family. Ps I now live in France with my husband, but return to Sussex often as we have a small flat in Littlehampton

Watched the documentary many years ago, it is superb in its own peculiar way. Just don't take it too seriously and enjoy the way the interviewer gets the best out of the eccentric cast.
